Indianapolis Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer

Is is safer to walk? It depends on who you ask. Nationally, pedestrian injuries have been on a downward trend for the past two decades, and slightly increased in 2012.

• In 2012, 4,743 people were killed across the nation in pedestrian/motor vehicle crashes, more than 12 people every day of the year (NHTSA Traffic Safety Facts).

• In the state of Indiana in 2012, there were 1750 pedestrians involved in Indiana collisions. Out of this number 64 of them were killed. (Source:

Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer Merry Fountain is here to help. Free Consultation.
As the statistics show, many pedestrians become victims through no fault of their own. Pedestrian accidents can occur due to drivers who are inattentive and often result in serious injuries, such as head injuries, spinal cord injuries or broken bones.  These injuries can result in financial losses. Fortunately, Indiana law allows an injured person the right to recover damages from the responsible party.

Fountain Law Firm can help you receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, future wages, pain and suffering, mental suffering and the loss of enjoyment of life. Monetary compensation can never repair the heartache and suffering, but it can help with the financial burdens. 

If you were injured due to a negligent driver call me. I am an experienced Indiana pedestrian accidents lawyer and I will conduct an investigation to ensure all evidence is preserved to properly pursue your case. 

Immediately following pedestrian accidents, the insurance company will begin their investigation by obtaining recorded statements, interviewing witnesses, photographing the scene, obtaining a copy of the police report – typically within the first week of the accident. This may not be in your best interest. The insurance company hopes to avoid future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages such as permanent disability or corrective surgery.

While an insurance adjuster may answer your questions and appear friendly and helpful, remember that the adjuster works for the other person’s insurance company, not you.

I will manage your case with personal, compassionate attention while you focus on your recovery. There is never a cost to you until you receive your settlement. Establishing the appropriate value of your claim for personal injury involves evaluating the nature and extent of the injury, the losses that are recoverable and the liability issues related to the accident.

If you’re unsure about your case, a FREE consultation from an Indianapolis pedestrian accidents lawyer can provide you with peace of mind. I will personally ensure that you understand your rights, your options, and the legal consequences of your decisions before proceeding. I am committed to obtaining the best possible settlement for you.
